The archive of Sandra Cisneros was recently acquired by The Wittliff Collections at Texas State University, reports the Houston Chronicle. Cisneros is one of my favorite authors. She is the bestselling author of “The House on Mango Street” and “Woman Hollering Creek,” among others, and my pick for “influential Latinos” in a recent episode of The Little Radio Show.
According to the article, the archive consists of 250 boxes containing manuscripts for her major works, journals, letters, photos, videos, artwork, and other items. A preview of the archive is on view at the Wittliff Collections:
The Wittliff Collections is celebrating this important acquisition by exhibiting a preview selection of treasures from the Cisneros archive. Her entire collection will open for research once cataloging and preservation work is completed. Additionally, the Wittliff will launch a major exhibition showcasing the Sandra Cisneros Papers at that time.
